Pascal Siakam has come a long way from the small village in Cameroon where he grew up. At 27, he’s a power forward for the NBA’s Toronto Raptors! Now that he’s an established professional basketball player, he can’t wait to lavish his family with all the wonderful things they went without in his youth.
So to celebrate Mother’s Day and his mom’s birthday, Siakam decided to go big with his gift for mom Victoire Siakam. Really big! He bought her a house!
They haven’t had an official family home since Siakam’s dad passed away in 2014. Siakam wanted to show his appreciation for all his mom’s support over the years, so he greeted her at the door of her new place and shared the amazing news.
“Thank you for always being there for all of us and being the supermom you are,” he said. “With dad being gone, we haven’t been able to call a place home and it was always my dream to change that!”
We love seeing a dream come true! Watch Victoire’s adorable reaction in the video below, and don’t forget to share this sweet story.
